The Social Science Education Center's Fall 2019 History Alliance seminar will focus on The Interwar Period: 1919-1939.
World War I and World War II often dominate the discussion of early- and mid-twentieth century global history, and the interwar period can often be neglected. (This may not be true when discussing U.S. history, because of the interest in the Roaring Twenties and the Great Depression.) In this seminar we will focus on the social, cultural, and political developments of the world during this crucial period and help instructors better understand the important movements that occurred during this era that helped shape not only World War II, but the latter part of the twentieth century as well. This seminar will also address U.S. topics, and it is hoped will add to the instructors' knowledge of this period in U.S. history.
The Fall 2019 History Alliance seminar will meet Wednesday evenings from 4:15 to 6:45 pm from September 4 to December 4 on Weber State's Ogden Campus in Lindquist Hall Room 114. Campus parking is free in A1 after 4:00 pm. Registration for the course is now open.
